Frasi Oswald Chambers


„Corriamo il pericolo di dimenticare che non possiamo fare quello che fa Dio, e che Dio non fa quello che noi facciamo.“

„We tend to use prayer as a last resort, but God wants it to be our first line of defense. We pray when there's nothing else we can do, but God wants us to pray before we do anything at all.

Most of us would prefer, however, to spend our time doing something that will get immediate results. We don't want to wait for God to resolve matters in His good time because His idea of 'good time' is seldom in sync with ours.“


„If through a broken heart God can bring His purposes to pass in the world, then thank Him for breaking your heart.“

„Faith never knows where it is being led, but it loves and knows the One who is leading.“

„The remarkable thing about God is that when you fear God, you fear nothing else, whereas if you do not fear God, you fear everything else.“

„Have you been asking God what He is going to do? He will never tell you. God does not tell you what He is going to do; He reveals to you Who He is.“ My Utmost for His Highest: Selections for the Year

„We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties.“

„Patience is more than endurance. A saint's life is in the hands of God like a bow and arrow in the hands of an archer. God is aiming at something the saint cannot see, and He stretches and strains, and every now and again the saint says--'I cannot stand anymore.' God does not heed, He goes on stretching till His purpose is in sight, then He lets fly. Trust yourself in God's hands. Maintain your relationship to Jesus Christ by the patience of faith. 'Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him.“


„Prayer does not fit us for the greater work; prayer is the greater work.“

„Faith is deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways you may not understand at the time.“

„Don't forget to pray today because God did not forget to wake you up this morning.“ My Utmost for His Highest Journal

„Doubt is not always a sign that a man is wrong; it may be a sign that he is thinking.“


„God never gives us discernment in order that we may criticize, but that we may intercede.“

„At times God puts us through the discipline of darkness to teach us to heed Him. Song birds are taught to sing in the dark, and we are put into the shadow of God's hand until we learn to hear Him... Watch where God puts you into darkness, and when you are there keep your mouth shut. Are you in the dark just now in your circumstances, or in your life with God? Then remain quiet... When you are in the dark, listen, and God will give you a very precious message for someone else when you get into the light.“

„One of the greatest strains in life is the strain of waiting for God.“

„It is inbred in us that we have to do exceptional things for God: but we have not. We have to be exceptional in the ordinary things, to be holy in mean streets, among mean people, and this is not learned in five minutes“
